BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

A Brunswick County man from Shallotte was sentenced Thursday as a habitual felon for the second time for selling crack cocaine.

Teddy Rudolph King was sentenced to 8-11 years in the North Carolina Department of Corrections after being convicted as a habitual felon for the second time. King was convicted for selling crack cocaine on North Mulberry Street in Shallotte.

King was first sentenced as a habitual felon in 2006 after being convicted for possession with the intent to sell or deliver cocaine. He was released from prison in August 2011 according to the District Attorney's office.

A little over a year later, King was arrested in November 2012, for the sale of cocaine, and was indicted as a habitual felon again.
